Vas Bets

Decades of creating canvases, murals and sculpture opened up my horizons and strengthened my devotion to stylistic pluralism. Most of my work lives in private homes. Residential peaces can be personalized to a higher degree than public work. Casino murals are unique in dramatic flair. Clear rhythm, strong colours and creative lighting results in dynamic and unforgettable experiences. Another favorite is tropical vegetation. It is a joy to paint.. I think it evokes the Garden of Eden, archetype shared by most of us born in temperate climate. Latest canvases and sculptural peaces result from my continuous obsession with meaning-making.
